Miranda Lambert’s ‘Platinum’ Hits the Road in Her Airstream
Miranda Lambert is all set to release her newest album 'Platinum' and she's giving fans a sneak peek of her new record in the most imaginative way possible. She's sending out her very own 1954 Flying Cloud Airstream -- nicknamed 'Wanda the Wanderer' -- on the Platinum Across America Tour!
The 10-day mini-tour will make stops all across the U.S. bringing Platinum-themed fun to all and giving a few lucky fans the chance to preview the entire album. And in honor of Lambert's fifth studio album, Wanda's getting all dressed up. The Airstream will be topped by a 6-foot-wide, 3-foot-tall aluminum crown complete with jewels!
“Wanda is my grandma on my mom’s side, although we call her Nonny. She’s a feisty lady full of sass,” says the 'Automatic' singer. “Since she can’t travel with us everywhere, we decided to name our faithful Airstream road companion, ‘Wanda The Wanderer,’ after her."
"She is the ‘queen of the road,’ and I’m so happy to share her, in all of her glory, with fans across the nation. She is what 'Platinum' is all about!"
While only a select few will get to listen to all of 'Platinum' before it's released on June 3, everyone can get a taste of the star treatment at a host of activities that will surround Wanda in every city. There will be a platinum hair station, a sun tea stand, corn hole, a leather workshop, vintage postcard photo ops and more. And fans who have pre-ordered 'Platinum' will also get to step aboard the vintage trailer and listen to the title-track during the festivities.
The Platinum Across America Tour kicks off May 20 in Los Angeles and hits seven cities across America before wrapping up in Philadelphia on May 31. First-listen fans will be selected in each city via a sweepstakes through Lambert's online and country radio community. For those who can't make it out to see 'Wanda the Wanderer,' they can follow her journey on Lambert's website, where they can also enter to win a trip to see Lambert in concert and meet the country hitmaker and her trusty trailer, Wanda.
